The organisers behind the new bar shared their excitement ahead of opening as they said: "We are thrilled to bring 'El Guapo' to the heart of Newcastle. Prepare for an extraordinary experience celebrating the spirit of agave and all things Tequila, Tacos and, obviously, Margaritas. 

“We have had an amazing 18 months as Pepo, but we’re now ready to explore our new concept harnessing our team’s insane love for agave cocktails, so we set about creating the world’s biggest Margarita – and we can’t wait to sprinkle a large dose of Mexico into our beautiful venue on Pilgrim Street.”

El Guapo will be open Thursday to Sunday from 5pm until 12am, with the later hours of 5pm to 2am on Friday and 12pm to 2am on Saturday. For information, please visit the El Guapo website.
